    Educated guess. I forced the connection to the TiVo server about 30 minutes ago. And usually when I do this, the "Next Attempt" will read approximately 24 hours later. But instead, today it shows "1:59 PM" today as the next attempt, a suspiciously precise-looking time and only about 2.5 hours after my last connection rather than the usual ~24 hours.

    Hmm ... I forced a connection 1.25 hours ago. I checked and my next attempt is scheduled for Friday at 10:08am. Who knows?

    Try forcing it again and see what happens.

    You may be right... I forced an update at 12:09pm EST and my next scheduled update will occur at 1:48pm EST.

    Maybe I've been assigned a "later priority".

    I think that happens sometimes when the original scheduled call is only a short time after you force a call. The old time still shows under Next Attempt, but then it doesn't actually make the second call.

    I've pretty much given up on streaming Prime on TiVo
    Would LOVE to see it happen, but something tells me TiVo just isn't going to get it together :(

    We have had a lot of indications from people in the know that Amazon is working on an updated App for the TiVo.

    Of course, it is a lot of assumptions that this new app, but I think it is a reasonable assumption.

    What I want to caution, is even if the new Amazon app is a component of the spring update it does not mean you will see it immediately. TiVo may wait until the deployment is complete before flipping the switch. TiVo may just set the container and have to wait on Amazon to deploy.

    And, nobody says it is even planned for this release...

    But I for one and more optimistic that before. Not willing to make a prediction on odds, but I do think it is coming soon.

    Indeed. A couple of nights ago we had a Comcast outage (during the start of the Xfinity VOD Watchathon!) that lasted several hours. I was glad to have shows on my TV to watch!

    I would not hold my breath for a prime streaming update. Amazon hasn't even released an app on base Android. Why would they bother with TiVo? They seem to want their own ecosystem eventually. Fire TV being another piece. I'd love to be wrong, but that seems to be where we are.

    The TiVo app is easy, just an HTML 5 port of their existing app.

    The Android app is hard as has been discussed over, and over, and over, and over, and over.

    Not having an Android app is not an indication of lack of desire, it is an indication of a fractured distribution model and only the most recent devices capable of handling the required security.
